Hey all. With winter coming, I am working on ideas in my head on how to heat the chicken's water this winter. I have a flock of roughly 80-100, plus turkeys. I also have a LGD in with my flock. Aquarium heaters are out. I have large tanks in my house, and they are not designed to maintain a constant heat in cold temps. I've been toying with the idea of the large plastic 55 gallon drums, and a stock tank heater dropped in. I don't have electricity in my coop, but I do in the barn next to it, and can run an extension cord to it. I will also be keeping the water container(s) in the coop. I have great ventilation, and more than enough room. I was planning on using the little square nipples on the sides of the drum, but any thoughts on how I can water the dog off the same drum? I've also thought about heat tape, but honestly, I know nothing about it, or how it works. I'm in west Texas, but near the Panhandle. We don't have long, harsh winters, but it does get below zero, and last year ice storms knocked out power, water (we're on a well) and heat for 6 days. There is no way in heck I can lug out enough water for the flock and the dog on a daily basis. Any thoughts? What's worked well for you? If you use a stock tank heater, what brand do you recommend?
